“My mission as a nurse practitioner is to provide high quality compassionate care to meet the physical, mental and emotional needs of each patient for the improved health of our entire community”

About Me

Growing up in rural Appalachia, I always wanted to help the people in my community and serve and empower them. I may no longer live in rural Appalachia, but I’ve found a new home here in Tucson with community that feels like family. I want to teach my patients about health promotion and disease prevention and help them achieve their healthcare goals.

Professional Experience

I've been a nurse for over 16 years and worked in orthopedics, labor and delivery, pediatrics and urgent care. The past 5 years, I have dedicated to teaching licensed practical nursing students the art and science of nursing at the community college.

Favorite activity outside of work

Enjoy attending fitness classes such as Zumba, hiking and fishing. When trying to escape the Tucson heat, I love traveling to new destinations and if it involves water activities even better

What will make you a great provider?

I believe in healthcare that is a partnership between patients and their provider with shared decision making and open communication.
